College football's national signing day tracker: Live updates, news, analysis and more

Thursday, December 19, 2019

The biggest day in college football recruiting is here. National signing week's early period begins Wednesday and lasts until Friday. This is the time when high school recruits are able to sign their national letters of intent to lock them into the colleges of their choice.

This is only the third year that college football has had an early signing period, as opposed to the national signing day held on the first Wednesday in February.

We've seen more and more prospects make their decisions earlier. In fact, 71% of FBS prospects signed early in 2017, and that number jumped to 77% in 2018.

We will be updating you throughout the next few days, providing updated class rankings, news, analysis, highlights and more.
